Prinses Máxima Centrum

Frequently asked questions about the corona virus

What measures is the Princess Máxima Center taking? What preparations have been made? We follow developments closely, together with experts from the UMC Utrecht. On this page we answer frequently asked questions by parents and children. We adjust them when the situation requires this.

Corona measures at the Máxima Center as of September 29
As in other Dutch hospitals, the requirement for facemask will be dropped. Keeping 1.5 meters apart is not compulsory, but it is wise. With caution, the corona measures are relaxed at the Princess Máxima Center.

The most important measures:

  • Do not shake hands
  • Wash/disinfect hands frequently
  • Cough or sneeze into the elbow
  • Testing in case of (mild) complaints
  • Keep 1,5 meter distance where possible

Is a facemask mandatory in the Máxima?
As of September 29, 2021, the requirement for a facemask will expire in the Máxima. Caregivers working within 1.5 meters of a child do wear a facemask.

Will children with cancer get a 3rd vaccination soon?
The RIVM has decided that a certain group of children aged 12 and over (born before June 1, 2009) will be offered a 3rd vaccination during or shortly after treatment with chemotherapy. This concerns children with a hematological disorder, solid tumor, brain tumor, immune disorder or after transplantation. This is because studies in adults have shown that the first two vaccinations do not always work sufficiently. A 3rd vaccination can increase the immune response against the coronavirus and therefore this group of children is eligible. The Máxima Center will be sending these children a personal letter from mid-October. With this letter they can make an appointment for vaccination with the Pfizer vaccine at a GGD in their area.

Are all activities at the Máxima going on again?
Yes, all activities have restarted. In this link you can see the weekly changing activity calendar. Also the Make-A-Wish playroom, Muziekids Studio, Ronald McDonalds Huiskamers, and the Play Center are open again. Spaces such as ‘de Bouwplaats’, the Park, the Teen Lounge and de ‘Ontdekplek’ are accessible as usual. Only for the Hairdressing Salon we ask you to make an appointment in advance.
